Come hold a sign consistent with our principles.

We Support:

  • Ceasefire among all parties; ending the Israeli mass killing of Palestinian civilians in Gaza and destruction of homes, hospitals, and businesses;
  • Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions - an international, nonviolent movement to put economic pressure on Israel to end the occupation;
  • The people of Gaza suffering from Israeli attacks; donations to Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) and Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF);
  • Use of our tax dollars for human needs here in the US - for affordable housing, food, healthcare, education, environmental protection, and all necessary human services.

We Oppose:

  • The illegal Israeli occupation of the West Bank and blockade of Gaza - the underlying cause of recurring violence;
  • NY Senators Schumer's and Gillibrand’s endorsement of Senate Resolution 498, attempting to justify Israel’s brutal assault on the civilian population of Gaza;
  • US military aid to Israel - over $6 Billion annually - which supports overwhelming military force used on the unarmed civilian population of Gaza;
  • Violent assaults by Israeli right-wing activists, with the collusion of the Israeli police, on Israelis protesting the massacre in Gaza.
